  • We really enjoyed learning about Las Vegas' early years and Prohibition time period as well as the history of the mob in Vegas. There are several pictures with captions that have many interesting...  more »

  • There is a lot of information to unpack here. We enjoyed it a lot. Just wish we had to spend more time to see the exhibits. You can move at your own pace. We just had to leave to catch a show we had already booked. The speakeasy bar downstairs is amazing. Moonshine was awesome and I had about the smoothest old-fashioned ever down there.
  • There mob museum is a great way to learn about some fascinating portions of American history. The history and the detail provided in the exhibits are great. You get to learn about both the mob and organized crime in general but also it's involvement in the creation of Vegas as it is now. After your visit to the museum you have a great opportunity to explore the rest of Fremont Street since you're in the area already.
  • Nothing was spared in detail or beauty. The museum itself is just beautiful. Five floors of actual museum, one super duper cool underground bar. The extensive effort put into the interactive exhibits, the pieces on display, the "activities", the information itself, even the bathrooms, all of the actual physical portion of the museum itself (a revived ancient courthouse) is a wonder.
  • This was my fourth visit to this museum over the span of several years and it seems as though they add more information each year. The staff is always friendly, inviting, and informative. Also very supportive as they keep an eye out for people having a hard time with the content (there is a graphic section that can be skipped). Just as the Valley has adapted over time to entertain tourists, the museum has adapted to make a dynamic learning environment about the history behind organized crime. They have also tied the information to current day information.
  • Very informative! Expect to spend a lot of time here if you really want to dig deep into it's content. The staff is friendly and welcoming! You start on the 3rd floor and make your way thru each floor until you get to the basement. Again, it's a lot to take in!! Loads of reading but very intriguing material! The wristbands allow for in and out entry for the entire day - big plus.
